Krogstand, for his own selfish reasons, wrote Torvald a letter explaining Nora’s indiscretions. Once Torvald was able to view the letter, his true self was revealed to Nora. With the revelation of Torvald’s lack of lack of empathy, lack of communication, and selfishness, Nora finds within her the strength she needs to sacrifice her family and go against the patriarchal society and ultimately reveal her own independence.

Did a city ruin its chance at success by not listening? According to Dr. Stockman, it did. Dr. Stockman, one of the principal characters in Henrik Ibsen’s, An Enemy of the People, discovers that the town’s primary source of monetary income is the spa, which is located, seemingly unnoticed by the populace, over a cesspool containing many harmful chemicals. After acknowledging his brother’s discovery, Mayor Stockman, Dr. Stockman’s brother, ultimately forbids publishing the find in the town paper. Dr. Stockman, however, is reluctant to allow this discovery to go unforeseen to the citizens.
On one hand people were saying that what the Queen did was wrong because she shouldn't have someone to talk to her son but that she should do it for herself. And on the other side of the arguement, people were saying that they would talk to their friend for the parent but not if they were going to get paid. I don't think that Hamlet is crazy, I feel that he just needed to get his thoughts to gether because he was still trying to comprehend that fact that his mother got married to his uncle and she didn't even seem to care about what he felt. What is the cause of someone being insane or who?
They bring a lot of money to the city, but he is not certain of their healthy quality. So he makes a research and finds out that the ‘Baths’, as he had suspected, are unhealthy for the people. Then, he decides that the right thing to do is inform his townspeople of the polluted water, and protect them. However as it turns out, not everyone is in favor of this discovery, especially his brother, the mayor, who successfully turns everyone against him.

When Nora finally confesses the truth, Torvald yells at her for ruining his reputation, yet he does not bother to ask how she managed to do it or state his gratitude for saving his life. Instead, Torvald worries about his image in front of the society. The society compels men like Torvald to bear the financial burden. If, women handled the finance then this idea of women taking the role as a bread winner, tarnishes the men 's image. The society will, therefore, taunt their inability to provide necessity items for his family and the household.
For instance, when Argon says, “You leave my insides alone.” She comes back with, “I wish you would. You’d be a different man.” She also lets the audience know by saying, “Why, if it wasn’t for him you wouldn’t even know you were ill,” speaking of the apothecary. The main conflict of the play is Argon’s unwillingness to accept that he is not ill and he is, in fact, a very healthy man. This “illness” leads to the selfishness that he shows his family, especially his daughter Angelica. Later in Act I his “illnesses” prove to have relevance to the conflict when she speaks of Cleante, the man she loves.
